ACCOMMODATION

Existing farm buildings have been converted into comfortable, cosy accommodation. Join us on the farm as a wedding guest, with your colleagues on a corporate break-away, or for a mini-break with your loved ones.

 

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS A WORKING FARM, THEREFORE TRUCKS, TRACTORS, STAFF AND MAINTENANCE TEAMS ARE GOING ABOUT THEIR DAILY BUSINESS, CARING FOR AND IMPROVING OUR FACILITIES. THERE MIGHT BE CONSTRUCTION IN PROGRESS NEAR YOUR UNIT DURING WORKING HOURS. THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING!

THE GUESTHOUSE

5 ROOMS, 2 GUESTS EACH

Room 2-6. Originally built as classrooms with salvaged materials including antique windows and parquet flooring from sites in Pretoria’s “old east”. The classrooms were converted into guest rooms in 2012, but were later gutted in a fire in 2016. We had to rebuild the rooms in a period of three months due to the fact that we were fully booked almost 18 months in advance! We are proud of the contemporary spaces that have been created with the eclectic combination of existing infrastructure, recycled materials and modern furniture.

The Suite: The Waldorf School’s first matric class sat here and their blackboard was against the wall behind the fireplace! We rebuilt the rooms after the fire, this time creating a larger space with extra ablutions, ideal for the bridal party to get ready in their big day and to enjoy the beautiful view from the luxurious bathtub.


THE GARDEN COTTAGE

1 UNIT, 4 GUESTS

This charming free-standing thatch cottage is surrounded by beautiful trees, abundant birdlife, and breath-taking sunset views.

The open-plan living area has a bespoke kitchenette with all the essentials for a weekend stay on the farm. We recently added a spacious loft, thereby doubling the occupancy of the unit to 4. The large patio and braai area ensures that the Garden Cottage is the perfect spot for a lazy breakaway from
the city.

The bedroom has a king-size bed with an electric blanket, and an en-suite bathroom with a shower and a free-standing bath. Amenities include Rosemary Hill body wash, soap, shampoo, lotion, insect repellent and room spray, as well as tissues and towels. It also boasts a spacious separate lounge with tea and coffee making facilities, fruit bowl, biscuits and rusks, DSTV, hairdryer, heaters and a fan.

 


THE CABIN

1 UNIT, 2 GUESTS

This one-of-a-kind container cabin was such an adventure to design!  We learnt as we worked, and found creative ways to incorporate all the essential amenities required in a luxury cabin, with some fun, quirky features added.  We made use of various recycled building materials, from the actual shipping container (with it’s original floor planks!) to the cladding, ceiling materials, beadings, bricks and sanitary equipment, all the way through to the cooking-oil drums used to cast the concrete columns on which the frame rests!

The result of this labour of love is a bespoke double-storey unit with a queen-sized bed and unique free-standing bath upstairs – boasting views only surpassed once you discover the sunset views on the elevated chill net!  The cabin is equipped with the option of a sleeper couch downstairs and has a fully equipped kitchenette, bathroom with a shower (in addition to the free standing bath upstairs). 

This unit is situated in Cabinville, just 200m from Rosemary Hill’s main venues and coffee shop.  If you would like to book the cabin and you are not a wedding or function guest, please note that there is a likelihood that you will hear the music and there may be guests returning to nearby rooms late at night.


THE PODS

3 UNIT, 2 GUESTS per pod

These curved cabins were born from an idea we got after a friend shared a video of similar units abroad.  We made use of what we had and put our guys to work:  The result is a compact, well laid out space with all the essentials required for an overnight stay.  The beautifully appointed kitchenette & wardrobe unit designed by Raw studios adds a refined touch that elegantly compliments the modern decor. 

The curved bathroom is quirky and unique with the tiled details sure to feature in many an Instagram post.  Guests can lounge on the private patio or star-gaze on their own chill net over-looking the large pond.

THE DORMS

2 HOUSES, 22 GUESTS EACH

 

The buildings were originally built as boarding houses for an agricultural college. Over the years they also accommodated high school boarders, a youth ministry and even an old-age home. We were very excited to oversee the evolution of these spaces into spacious user-friendly facilities for large families, couples or groups of friends to get together and enjoy their break-away on the farm.


THE LOFTS

3 UNITS, 2-4 GUESTS EACH

 

Originally built as a multifunctional studio space and later used as a ward for an old-age home, this building has enjoyed an incredible makeover! Lourens, one of the owners, immediately insisted that we turn it into three Lofts with beautiful sunset views. This was our first foray into building residential units from scratch and we had a lot of fun. It was the start of our love affair with basic plain pine finishes, as you can see from the counter tops, stairs, and bedroom furniture.


THE STUDIOS

4 UNITS, 2 GUESTS EACH

 

The Studio Apartments are the latest addition to our farmstays offering. They were inspired by the Lofts, with a more modern, compact space and is ideal for couples or young families. You can enjoy the central location and its close proximity to the pool for a quick dip during the hot summer months. Studio 1 and 2 are two ground floor units, with its own small garden. Studio 3 and 4 is on the first floor (up a flight of stairs) and it has a private balcony.


THE CONDO

1 UNIT, 6 GUESTS

 

The newly renovated Condo is perfect for a family. It contains a fully equipped kitchen, lounge area, patio and a shared bathroom with a shower. There is a room downstairs with a queen bed and a second room upstairs containing a queen bed and two single beds. The atmosphere is calming and the mellow sounds of nature will leave you feeling refreshed and relaxed.


THE STONE COTTAGE

1 COTTAGE, 2 GUESTS

 

This renovated cottage has been transformed into a contemporary double storey suite, surrounded by a luscious green forest. During the day it is bathed in the most beautiful African sunlight, and at night the sounds of the forest allow for a magical retreat.

The upper floor is an open area, with a king size bed and an opulent free-standing stone bath with a 180° view. The ground floor has a patio and dining area, leading into the kitchen and accompanied by a spacious lounge with a wonderful reading nook. The ground floor also has a double volume shower and a guest toilet.

The Stone Cottage is 250 meters away from The Greenhouse Café; and with all the natural light and green scenery, it is the epitome of what a romantic getaway should be.


THE ZENKAYA

1 UNIT, 2 GUESTS

 

The Zenkaya has been lauded for its green modular design integrating nature into the guests every move. The renovated one-of-a-kind structure, with its floor-to-ceiling glass panels and 270° porch perfectly joins design and nature, offering an experience like no other. The open plan design, equipped with award winning RAW Studio’s furniture, features a kitchenette, a queen size bed and a beautiful patio. The bathroom has an indoor shower, and for the adventurous, there are also steps leading to a private tree-top shower.

The Zenkaya is 300 meters away from The Greenhouse Café and 1,5km from Rosemary Hill.
